2014 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Aug-18-2014 by Rob Warner
The Giants used a fourth-round pick to select the 2013 Doak Walker Award winner (best college running back) from Boston College. The Heisman finalist has good size (5-foot-11, 230 pounds), but minimal receiving ability (just 10 catches during his 44 college games). He set school records in carries (355) and rushing yards (2,177), while averaging 5.31 YPC and scoring 28 touchdowns during his collegiate career. Williams ran a serviceable 4.56-forty at the combine and will contribute mostly as a downhill runner with limited game-breaking ability. He could emerge as a goal-line back and is worth owning in dynasty leagues.
UPDATE: Williams has 102 yards on 22 carries (4.6 YPC) through three preseason games and is worth a late round flier based on reports that he should see a fair amount of goal line carries (possible Brandon Jacobs role).
